A Tiny Fighter’s Journey

Last month, a small kitten with a broken body but an indomitable spirit arrived at Frederick Co. Animal Control. He had suffered multiple injuries, including fractured forearms, but remained remarkably calm throughout. Ellen Carozza, a feline specialist, stepped in to offer the specialized care he desperately needed.

The resilient kitten had been caught in a lawnmower accident, losing part of his ear and tail. Yet, despite his injuries, he warmed up quickly to his rescuers, purring and showing affection. Immediate care was provided, including splints and pain management, before he was entrusted to Ellen’s expert team.

Ellen and her team crafted custom splints for him, using halved tongue depressors to create a comfortable V-shaped support. The kitten, dubbed Johnny 2 Sticks, quickly adapted to his new aids. He even showered Ellen with kisses and had a hearty appetite, enjoying every spoon-fed meal and cuddle session.

Johnny’s favorite activity soon became cozying up on Ellen’s lap. He stayed content as his splints were replaced, never once complaining. Ellen marveled at his cheerful demeanor, noting that he was always active and loving, no matter the circumstances.

Remarkable Recovery

As he healed, Johnny discovered new ways to move with his splints. Ellen fashioned booties for him, and he quickly learned to glide across the floor like a mini skier. In just two weeks, his progress was nothing short of remarkable. He was soon fitted with softer splints that better conformed to his legs.

After a week, he no longer needed the splints. His x-rays showed significant improvement, allowing him to move freely without any aids. Johnny was ecstatic, using his front paws to eagerly reach for Ellen’s face and shower her with kisses.

With his newfound freedom, Johnny turned every cat bed into his lair and every cardboard box into a fort. He dove into his food with gusto and enjoyed his treats. His playful spirit knew no bounds, and he embraced every moment of his recovery.

When it was time to meet the resident cats, Johnny put on a show, puffing up his fur and crab-walking to appear larger. Though he was the smallest, he had the heart of a lion, fearlessly interacting with the other cats in the home.

Embracing Life to the Fullest

Johnny’s playful nature blossomed. He loved to boss around the other cats and get into as much mischief as possible, never sitting still. He thoroughly inspected and tasted the tub in the bathroom and even commandeered the top of a cat tree using his unique squeeze-and-push technique.
